    Btsy DeVos should not chair the education cbinet. Her family has boughten this candidacy nomination (and I quote article written in, The Atlantic, Jan 17, 2017) by giving more than "1 million to more than 20 senators who will vote on her confirmation, including roughly $250,000 to members of the education committee." "She lacks experience in public education & her family has ties to conservative religious organizations." "She also has spoken in the past about advancing a Christian agenda through education." "She has ties to a firm that loaned money to a debt-collection agency that did business with the US Education Department." "She has also suggested that a federal law governing how students with disabilities are educated could be left to states." "She has never taught public school, never attended public school and never held elected office." "She is a strong supporter of privatizing the US education system, however in her state of Michigan where she has concentrated many of her efforts, has some of the worst-performing, least-regulated charter schools (privately run, publicly funded) in the country."
